E-Mail an Gwen Wirobski



For my PhD in the field of behavioural endocrinology and human-animal interactions I am investigating the role of oxytocin during the domestication process. My model species are wolves, dogs, and humans. My background is in veterinary medicine and I have broad interests in behavioral biology, comparative cognition, ethology, and physiology. I am very interested in integrating different methodological approaches (behavioural, physiological) in my research.
